3.55/5  rDev -12.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Chuck's 85th.

Pours a murky copper with little head to speak of.
Smell is floral, citrus, some lighter fruits. Tasty bouquet.
Taste is lots of pine, earthy, more citrus on the finish.
Mouthfeel is solid. Nothing special, but drinkable.
Overall, a solid IPA. Kind of small, and not really something I would go out of my way to get, but it's worth a try.

draft at Chuck's

a: served in a pint mason mug, the skookum dipa is a deep copper in color, topped with a thin layer of white carbonation

s: caramel malt body with a moderate sweetness, plenty of citrus peel and pine aromatics, not particularly powerful, but solid and hits the right notes so far

m: a moderate body and carbonation brings a satisfying mouthfeel

t: same simple but successfull structure as the aroma - good caramel malt weight with a balance of bitter citrus and sappy pine, fairly resinous, good stuff

o: enjoyed this one, nice hop notes and drinks well for the style

on-tap @ the brewery

Enjoyed this at the bizarrely enormous Skookum taproom - not necessarily a place I would return to, but a pretty tasty IPA. Sticky pine resin, nice clean citrus hops, traces of booze, earthy tones. I'd go for this again - hit the spot

On tap at the brewery.
Only problem is the plastic cup they serve it in. If I had only known they encourage you to bring your own glass - next time.
Pours very nice amber with average head.
Flavor is very full. Bold. Hoppy. Aftertaste very pleasant. A hophead's dream.
Up there with the best of them. Will definitely revisit at any opportunity.

Served in bubble pint glass. Poured a medium-deep amber color with about 1/4 inch of off-white head that had no retention, but good lacing.

The aroma featured piney hops with some citrus notes floating in the background. There wasn't a particularly noticeable hop presence in the nose. On the tongue the story was pretty similar, the malt showed up more to provide a solid base, the danced between pine and citrusy, and there was a somewhat bitter finish.

The body was fuller than typical for the style, very good and tongue coating. The beer was fairly drinkable for the style, perhaps due to it's relatively lower ABV. Overall, a solid example of the style. Worth your time when you see it.
